Back pain, stiff muscles, achy joints… the list of ailments people experience as they age is about a mile long.

And while many believe these sorts of symptoms are an inevitable part of getting older, my guest says that simply isn’t true.

On this episode of the Dr. Gundry Podcast, I speak with the healthy movement coach Aaron Alexander.

As the owner and founder of Align Therapy, Aaron helps people improve their strength, balance, flexibility, and structural alignment to live healthy, happier lives at any age — pain free!

One of his specialties is rolfing, a form of physical manipulation intended to align your body. 

On this episode, we discuss how some seemingly “normal” everyday habits can hurt your body, and how rolfing, massage, and healthy movement can help you feel amazing — not just physically, but mentally and emotionally, too.

We also talk about what you can do TODAY to start feeling better in your body and avoid “big picture” problems down the road.
